Is vaping killing us slowly?
E-cigarettes might be more dangerous than you thought
In 2003, we saw the arrival of an innovative product—the electronic cigarette. The e-cigarette seemed like a seemingly safer alternative to regular cigarettes and the perfect solution to quit smoking.
But soon enough, people from all walks of life started vaping, including teenagers. Using these devices became trendy, and they were quickly adopted by many young adults all over the world.
Despite claims of safety, several Americans were confirmed dead earlier this year due to "e-cigarette illness," with more than 1,000 similar cases existing. Now reports of "popcorn lung" have arisen, also due to smoking e-cigs. This begs the question: how safe is vaping, really?
